Clouds like mountains

When I was a kid, I once saw clouds over and behind the Sangre de Cristo mountains, and it made them look as high as the Alps (like an illustration in a book I had as a child, of an Alpine village).

Yesterday there was a cloud behind the Sandias that looked like another mountain, and I remembered.

The cloud-colored roundness is cloud. Sky-matching mountain.

I once saw the northern lights when I was driving across Canada. I had never seen them before, and I thought they were from a lazer show at a big rock concert somewhere in a distant city I couldn't yet see. When I got out of the car to look around, the whole sky was alive. Your photo reminded me of that moment.
